>> reporter: university spokeswoman cassandra robinson told us members of her community remain saddened by the event that happened there last year, but she told us also that students there are now talking about the topics of civility and nonviolence much more often than they used to. john henrehan, fox 5 news. the confrontation between israel and the palestinians is escalating. egypt's new islamist government is promising to stand by the palestinians and is telling israel to end its airstrikes on gaza, this as palestinians fire rockets at jerusalem and israel calls up 16,000 reservists increasing the likelihood of a full scale ground war. fox's david lee miller is near the gaza border with more. >> reporter: for the third day in a row israelis ran for cover from rockets by pal standian militants. -- palestinian militants. more than 150 attacks were

and senate intelligence committees today about the consulate attack in benghazi, libya. petraeus testified he mentioned terrorist elements during a briefing to lawmakers days after the attack, something committee chairman peter king says he doesn't recall. >> the talking points were much more specific about al-qaeda involvement and yesterday it said indications of extremists. it said indicate even though it was clearly evidence to the cia thatwas al-qaeda involvement. >> lawmakers on capitol hill say they still have a lot of questions including who was behind the attack and how they got inside the compound. a potomac man imprisoned in cuba three years is suing the u.s. government and his former employer. alan gross is serving a 15 year sentence for spying. he was arrested on his fifth tribble to cuba working to provide internet -- fifth trip to cuba working to provide internet service to the jewish community. he says the government did not adequately train him or disclose the risks he was undertaking by doing that work.

the beltway, the express lanes will get their first test. the lanes run 14 miles each direction from springfield to the american legion bridge along the beltway. how much it will cost depends on congestion and how far you travel. the more drivers using it, the higher the toll. it's expected to cost $5 to $6 for the average trip during rush hour. carpoolers with three or more people will drive free. motorcycles will also be free, but drivers will need an ez pass to use the lane. carpoolers will need an ez pass flex which has a switch to avoid paying the toll. >> before every entry point to the 495 express lanes you'll see two pricing signs. that will give you prices to three destinations. the bottom price is the maximum you could pay to go the furthest from that entry point. so that's your most accurate price, but there are pricing tools on the 495 express lane's website. >> reporter: and a very special guest took the inaugural trip today in the express lanes.

surprise dr. carmen petsold. she says it's now common for kids to put these suicidal thoughts online. >> even more than online now and through text messaging it's just astounding. some kids text 3 or 400 times a day. so they're really putting their whole life out there. what they used to be talking about on the phone or online now is via text and so it's essential that parents are a part of that communication. >> sometimes he said they use what seemed like suicidal thoughts in a text message or online. he said that can mean different things. sometimes it's a test. >> yes. some kids who are beginning to feel really depressed may want to be reassured that be? loves them. if they put these -- that somebody loves them. if they put these signs out there like i didn't feel it was worthwhile is something you hear a lot and nobody pick up

have witty banter. >> i have no witty banter. got a redskins game this weekend at home and folks might want to go out to madame tussauds tomorrow and economic -- check out stephen colbert in wax. >> i think it's good, a decent weekend, a lot like today, a few more clouds on sunday, but basically real good. that's all i can really muster for this weekend. so you don't have any excuses why you can't be out and about both days. the highs today were right up in the lower to mid-50s, kind of depending where you are. this afternoon in terms of where your temperature got to, national the temperature 55 degrees, dulles 53, bwi a little cooler at 52. this is just going to be the range that we'll see, temperatures in the lower to mid-50s pretty much all weekend long. numbers are cooling down now, 45 here in town, gaithersburg 34, frederick down to 30, manassas down to 30, culpeper
34, winchester 34 and 46 degrees for quantico, annapolis 45 as well. so temperatures anywhere from the 30s to the 40s and outside the beltway tonight it will be getting very cold. i guess you could just say this weekend is not going to be too terribly bad, cool in the afternoon, but we'll have good amounts of sunshine tomorrow, high temperature 54 degrees. it's looking like a few clouds sunday. it does not look like we would call it mostly cloudy. i would just say relative to tomorrow we'll have a few more clouds out there sunday and that may keep the temperature down just a little pit. we're talking a degree -- bit. we're talking a degree here. tonight the clouds and satellite not showing anything. we're completely clear. that's one of the reasons why those temperatures are falling down so fast tonight in the suburbs with clear skies and light wind. it just makes for the perfect setup to get real cold out there. it is clear from the east coast all the way out into the central plains. high pressure is building in.
we do have some cloud cover off to the east of us along the coast and this will stay here for the next several days. as a matter of fact, its positioning of high pressure to the north of us, tomorrow we look real good. winds will come from the northeast. that keeps us a little cool, draining in some of the colder air from up north with plenty of sunshine. sunday the only real change is that down to the south there will be a slowly developing area of low pressure and this area of low pressure is going to be down here quite a while. then it's going to move north and northeast. it may take several days to do that. so i anticipate the same basic setup now for the next several days where the high is to the north of us and the low is to the south of us. so we are funneling in and trying to push in some clouds. it looks like we'll get a few clouds on sunday, but right now it's looking like monday and tuesday, those are the days that we're going to see more
clouds, probably mostly cloudy by monday and tuesday. i think that will keep the temperature down a bit, but in terms of that storm it does not look like it's going to bring any rain at all. we'll probably get a little marine layer coming over to the west. that will bring in the clouds. tonight not the case, perfectly clear, winds out of the north at 5 miles per hour. of course, out in the suburbs, very cold with temperatures dropping below freezing, at least freezing and below i would think outside the beltway. loads of shine tomorrow. we'll start with 40 degrees. we're 51 degrees by noon time and the highs tomorrow again right up into the middle 50s. so it looks real good. again a few more clouds sunday, but plenty of sunshine, temperature in the lower to mid- 50s there. more clouds on monday and tuesday with temperatures in the lower 50s. we'll say the day before thanksgiving wednesday 55 degrees, but it's going to be dry. it will be dry for most of the east coastful so traveling up and down -- coast.
so traveling up and down i-95 shouldn't be a problem. temperatures look great in the upper 50s and lots of sunshine and a little cooler after thanksgiving on friday, the all important black friday. >> thank you, gary. another big week in washington. general david petraeus testified before congress about the benghazi attack. earlier today i spoke with fox news sunday host chris wallace about that and what we can expect on his show this weekend. >> we'll be talking first to the vice chair of the senate intelligence committee sacks saxbee chambliss and joe lieberman. there have been a series of closed door hearings this week. what have they learned? there are really three parts of the story, the warnings and needing more security, what happened between the first and second attacks that night and thirdly, why this very confusing series of accounts afterwards about whether it was a terror attack, just a
spontaneous mob upset about a video. so we'll be asking them to try to sort all that out. >> let me ask you earlier this week president obama gave his first press conference since being reelected. the benghazi situation came up, namely susan rice's explanation when she came out talking about it. it seems like i thought the election was over, but it seems like politics are still fueling some of the back and forth between both sides. do you think we'll see this continue? >> on this issue, yes. i don't know necessarily -- yes, there's always politics in washington, but i think this is much sharper and more personal. when it comes to the fiscal cliff, everybody seems to be at least trying to move towards a compromise. there are still some big differences in approach. on benghazi it's gotten very personal with a number of leading republican senators like john mccain and lindsey graham saying they will vote to block the nomination of susan rice to be secretary of state if she is named to replace
hillary clinton, talking about the need for watergate style committee and the president in his news conference firing back at them. this is vernal and i'm surprised just after -- very personal and i'm surprised just after an election how sharp and divisive it's been. >> we heard mitt romney talking about the reasons he thought he lost the election, because of the so-called gift that president obama gave, but then we've seen some top republicans who want to step back from that, namely bobby jindal. how do you think this will play out for the rep party? >> well, it's interest -- the republican party? >> well, it's interesting because the most negative comments about what governor romney had to say about the president's policies towards hispanics and young people and women, they were all just gifts as if they were somehow he bought their votes. the toughest comments came from republicans, not democrats. you mentioned bobby jindal, governor of louisiana, scott walker, governor of wisconsin. they'll be guests on our show
and this is part of their of the to break with romney, to break with the defeat of november of 2012 and try to reposition the party as something that is more gentle, more favorable, more approachable to a lot of the groups out there who voted in large numbers against republicans in this election. >> we will see you guys this sunday at 9:30 for fox news sunday. coming up next looking to make some cash? house slipping is back and d.c. is a prime spot. >> and in minutes a new way to enjoy the city's nightlife in style. we'll check out the d.c. hopper next on the news edge. alright let's break it down.
